Zombie Awareness Month

Posted by David On May 13, 2011 ADD COMMENTS

Calling all Zombie fans! May is Zombie Awareness Month and is the perfect time to follow the example of the good people at the Zombie Research Society and spread the message of the inevitable Zombie threat to your loved ones and the world.

Check out their site at – http://www.zombieresearch.org/ and arm yourself with knowledge. As they say, What you don’t know can eat you.

However, don’t follow the example of architect Robert Konieczny of KWK Promes in Poland.

Despite some early reports from internet users, his ‘Safe House’ is definitely not Zombie proof. At least without some substantial custom modifications.

The house features movable parts and folds in on itself completely at the end of the day to seal against outside threats.


















The Safe House has just one entrance, on the second floor, connected by a drawbridge. For extra security, after crossing the bridge, visitors have to wait within a safety zone before being let into the rest of the house. During the day, the house opens to create a courtyard and let in light.

While this sounds awesome for natural disasters like cyclones, it is terrible for a Zombie epidemic. Where is the secure perimeter? Where are the weapons? There is also no mention of an alternate escape route like a tunnel or helipad, so what happens if they manage to break down the roller door in the front? And with only one exit, what happens when you need to get out to forage for food? You may get in and out once or twice but eventually they will notice the weakness in the defenses and you wont be able to get out again.

But it does look cool.

So be informed and spread Zombie awareness to all, before the Zombie infection spreads itself!
